Newbie: How much flow?
I've decided to take the plunge into planted tanks and I will be converting my existing 12g DX nano cube into a planted tank (why? because i don't have to buy a new tank to start!).
Presently, I have an Eheim Ecco filter hooked up to it (modded intake in the back wall, with a return bar at the bottom back wall). I also removed the stock pump and replaced it with a Maxi-Jet 900 (this was due to my previous salt water set up). The Maxi Jet returns water to the tank via a Hydor Flo return that gently agitates the surface.
Anyway, my questions are:
Is this too much flow for a planted tank?
Should I ditch the Maxi Jet 900 and instead use my spare Maxi Jet 400 (120 gph)?
How about the spray bar? [I had planned to place this against the back wall and direct the jets back at the wall in an effort to reduce flow.]
Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated!
